Wow! Good evening Astrid, Your photographs are great. I love the way they show how the rocks have weathered and worn by the water's edge. Thanks for sharing them.



Astrid Lied on April 24, 2007

Thanks Rich!

I'm sorry, but I have to correct you here. The water never made these shapes, it was done by tonnes and tonnes of ice slowly pushing rocks and pebbles along underneath the glacier.

Of course, there are examples of water shaping rocks as well, but only with the help of other rocks :-)

Ah, of course, that makes sense. The rocks around your light house series had the same surface and form. The light comes on, there are glaciers in your part of the world. Thanks for sharing. Very beautiful pictures.



Astrid Lied on April 24, 2007

We do have a few glaciers, yes. Sadly, they keep diminishing these days.

The glaciers responsible for this artwork, however, haven't been around for the last ten thousand years or so.

Thanks again for your nice comments!

Colorado is having the same problem, only our glaciers are permanent snow fields that get smaller and smaller after each summer goes by. The world will be different in a few years.

For en perle, dette må være drømmeplassen for de som elsker hav og båtliv.

Hilsen Bjørn.

I like this photo of such a beautiful place, a yellow star! It looks great, but seems to be rather strange and difficult to live there. Greetings from Poland

Thanks, Karolina! There's nobody living in this place these days, but there used to be when the lighthouse wasn't all automatic.
